AG, SG not going says Smith-Johns

Source: Ministry of Information - August 28, 2010

The Fiji government has issued a statement against what it says are rumours concerning the dismissal or resignation of the Attorney General and Minister for Justice, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum and the Solicitor General, Christopher Pryde.

Permanent secretary for Information Sharon Smith-Johns said the rumours are unfounded and should be totally disregarded.

“The fact of the matter is that the Attorney General and the Solicitor General have been at the forefront of moving government reforms and are performing well above expectations and have the utmost confidence of the Prime Minister and other cabinet members.”

Smith-Johns said the statement was in response to queries made to her office.

“It’s obvious these rumors are being spread by individuals and disgruntled ex-politicians whose only interest is to undermine the economy and investor confidence.”
